“The Project” is an on-going series created by Sander Dekker from 2011 onwards. He chooses people he admires as his subjects: outgoing, spontaneous and always a bit eccentric. His work is impromptu in the sense that he often shoots at locations he has never visited before, meeting his models just before the photo session and working from zero concept. The energy which is created there in that moment, is what Dekker’s work is all about. Spontaneity and improvisation are therefore crucial, often resulting in surprising crops and spectacular compositions.

The series of portraits in this book, which include Pussy Riot member Yekaterina Samutsevic and many other Moscow citizens, were created by a machine: a facial recognition system recently developed in Moscow for public security and border control surveillance. The result is more akin to a digital life mask than a photograph; a three-dimensional facsimile of the face that can be easily rotated and closely scrutinised.

What is significant about this camera is that it is designed to make portraits without the co-operation of the subject; four lenses operating in tandem to generate a full frontal image of the face, ostensibly looking directly into the camera, even if the subject himself is unaware of being photographed.

The system was designed for facial recognition purposes in crowded areas such as subway stations, railroad stations, stadiums, concert halls or other public areas but also for photographing people who would normally resist being photographed. Indeed any subject encountering this type of camera is rendered passive, because no matter which direction he or she looks, the face is always rendered looking forward and stripped bare of shadows, make-up, disguises or even poise.

Co-opting this device, Broomberg & Chanarin have constructed their own taxonomy of portraits in contemporary Russia. Echoing August Sander’s seminal work, Citizens of the Twentieth Century, Broomberg & Chanarin have made a series of portraits cast according to professions. But their portraits are produced with this new technology, with little if any human interaction. They are low resolution and fragmented. The success of these images is determined by how precisely this machine can identify its subject: the characteristics of the nose, the eyes, the chin, and how these three intersect. Nevertheless they cannot help being portraits of individuals, struggling and often failing to negotiate a civil contract with state power.

This book is the result of a series of encounters, interactions and conversations between Broomberg & Chanarin and the photography collections at the Library of Birmingham made possible by a commission from GRAIN and the Library with support from the Arts Council of England.

Roe Ethridge
Sacrifice Your Body

Roe Ethridge’s practice is that of a restless maverick and his constantly evolving visual sensibility has spawned a myriad of copyists in what has become known as ‘the new school of synthetic photography’.

In this his latest artist book, Ethridge conflates a rich array of photographic tropes, combining personal documentary images made in western Palm Beach County, his mother’s childhood home, with surreal collage works, and a series discarded from a Chanel fashion shoot. These are interwoven with what appears to be a carefully directed scene depicting a teeth-white Durango SUV sinking into and then being retrieved from a canal. The clash of visual styles, histories and meaning establish a flatline of dissonance underscored by the touchline admonition of the neon title – SACRIFICE YOUR BODY.

Ethridge’s storytelling invokes a sense of discomfit akin to David Lynch’s film-making, a lucid undermining of veracity and morality and the ingrained materiality that underpins American life.

Roe Ethridge, born in 1969 in Miami, Florida, lives and works in New York. His work has been shown extensively at institutions around the world, including MOMA/PS1 (2000), Barbican Center, London (2001), Carnegie Museum of Art (2002), Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2005), The Whitney Biennial (2008), Museum of Modern Art, New York (2010), Les Recontres D’Arles, France (2011). Solo exhibitions include the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Garage, Moscow, and Le Consortium, Dijon, France (curated by Anne Pontegnie). In 2011 he was shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.

Breath Paintings
Produced by MOSTYN, Wales UK and the generous support of P420 Gallery Bologna

This book focuses on a selection of works from the series Radical Writings produced in the 1980s and 1990s. In these works the artist links her breathing to the gesture of writing, repeating a single action: drawing a line corresponding to one single breath. The striking blue paintings on canvas open up a discussion on language and signs, and on the authority of the written word that is constantly challenged as a vehicle of power.

This book is published in conjunction with the exhibition Irma Blank: Breath Paintings, MOSTYN, Wales UK (15 November–1 March, 2015)

Torbjørn Rødland
Confabulations

A dictionary will tell you that confabulations are memory disturbances; the production of fabricated, distorted memories about oneself and the world, but without a conscious intention to deceive.

“Subjectivity is not the master signifier of the image,” writes Ina Blom of Rødland’s work, “Nor is it lost in a vortex of abstractions: it is quite simply one point of connectivity among many. The camera, with its associated range of lenses, aperture settings, lighting devices, and film types, is another. […] The emphatic sheen, sleek glamour and casual perversity still thrive, but they take on an independent existence as new textural realities – as if to speak of a material world that we can never fully know.”

With Confabulations, Torbjørn Rødland presents a set of analogue photographs that subtly misrepresents broken memories and childhood fantasies. Confabulations distorts facts to get to truth. Fragmentation is neither rejected nor induced in this unitary approach, but seen as a starting point for new connections. Beneath a million silly memes Rødland is looking for new soul.

La Démocratie Est Illusion
Cura Books

La démocratie est illusion is a monographic publication by Goldschmied & Chiari, artists’ duo composed by Sara Goldschmied (1975) ed Eleonora Chiari (1971). The volume, published on the occasion of the solo exhibitions held at Passerelle Centre d’art contemporain in Brest and Villa Croce Museo d’arte contemporanea in Genova, collects the images of the works produced in the last two years on the relationship between the activities of the intelligence agencies and the practices of magic and illusionism in the Cold War era. The book accompanies the reader through an imaginary and real itinerary, between history and trickeries, from the installation and performance Hiding the Elephant – referring to the people who “mysteriously” disappeared, who were exiled or persecuted during the Cold War – to the last works of the series Untitled Views – digital prints on mirror in which the artists experiment the theatrical effects of colored smoke bombs. Along with the images, the book contains a conversation between Goldschmied & Chiari and Marcella Beccaria and the texts by Etienne Bernard and Ilaria Bonacossa, respectively curators of the show in Brest and Genova.

Ryan McGinley
Untitled, 1999
Lot Number 38
C-print
Work: 22.5 x 16 in (57.15 x 40.64 cm)
Frame: 31.5 x 25 in (80.01 x 63.5 cm)
Edition of 10
Signed, numbered, and stamped on recto

With exhilarating images, full of freedom, Ryan McGinley documented the very culture he was in, and began by photographing his friends as they got drunk, did drugs, had sex; as they lived life, and lived it fast. McGinley’s photographs are immediate and uncensored but always deeply sincere, recording the excitement, danger, and even dream-like escapism which fuels youth. Unashamed, even defiant, the figure in this picture holds a cigarette in one hand as she snorts cocaine off a spoon, riffing off Pulp Fiction in her bracelets and chic attire, in a Warholian world of sad glam. As one of the youngest artists whose work was exhibited at the Whitney, McGinley captures the fears and the fantasies of a generation at once casual and chaotic, but always unapologetically free. This print is from the artist’s “The Kids Are Alright” series.

Ageing Process, the first monograph entirely dedicated to Lara Favaretto co-published with Sternberg Press, documents the artist’s career from her earliest works of the 1990s to her most recent installations, presented in the 2015 exhibition “Good Luck!” at MAXXI. Structured like a sort of manual, this volume accompanies the entries on her works with essays by critics and experts from various disciplines, who tackle themes complementary but not directly connected to the artist’s practice. As Favaretto, who edited the book, explains, “I decided not to follow any chronological or alphabetical order, but to instead suggest a unified discourse by making the reading experience flow as smoothly as possible, following an underground web of references between the texts that would elude any scansion dictated by the sequence of dates or letters.”

Since her first photographs in the late ’70s, Bettina Rheims has defied the predictable. From her series on Pigalle strippers (1980) to her cycle on the life of Jesus in I.N.R.I. (1998), from Chanel commercials to Gender Studies (2011), her work has shaken up traditional iconography and pushed restlessly at the breaking point between two great human preoccupations: beauty and imperfection.

This Rheims retrospective showcases more than 500 photographs from 35 years of daring, often defiant, photography. Personally selected and assembled by Rheims, the collection juxtaposes renowned series such as Chambre Close, Héroïnes, and Rose, c’est Paris with many previously unpublished archival images and entries from Rheims’s own “diaries,” detailing behind-the-scenes work and personal memories.

Spanning commercial work and artistic series, the retrospective impresses with each turn of the page, as much for the strength of each image as for the thrilling variety of Rheims’s subjects and aesthetics. With equal attention to anonymous subjects cast in the street as to global celebrities including Kate Moss, Madonna, Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell, the book showcases Rheims’s particular interest in female fragility and strength, and of the magic encounter between model and artist which disrupts codes of so-called eroticism to build up a new image system for womanhood.
